Fleetwood Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 8

The Gingerbread House is located in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains!

The cabin features three bedrooms and two full baths. The master bath has a Jacuzzi and separate shower. Upstairs in the master loft is a queen-size, Shaker-style, canopy bed and day bed. Downstairs offers a queen, double, single-size beds, as well as a queen-size, pull-out sofa. These sleeping accommodations provide ample room for eight people. NEW, INTERNET! Pets are NOT allowed, no smoking please! Credit cards accepted.

The chalet has a 2 side wrap-around deck with a lovely view of the surrounding mountains; a trail to the Fleetwood Falls is just across the street. A lake for swimming and fishing is within a short walk. The New River flows serenely by at the base of the mountain for canoing and tubing at the base of this mountain resort.

Some of the south's best golf courses are just a few minutes away, and ski resorts conveniently located within a short distance. Near Grandfather and Blowing Rock Mtn.

About Patti Weaver

I am the original owner of the Gingerbread House. My family and I bought the lot and built the home in 1996 as a vacation home. We live in Florida, but love to escape to the cabin for all of the beautiful seasons the mountains offer. It is quite simply "my happy place", and I'm delighted to share it with others!

Patti Weaver purchased this cabin in 1996

Why Patti Weaver chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

I chose the area of Fleetwood Falls to build a cabin because it is not a high tourist traffic area. Rather, it's charm is all the nature that abounds for hiking, biking, fishing, tubing, or just plain relaxing. It is also very near Boone and Blowing Rock and West Jefferson, 3 unique towns that have much to offer.

What makes this cabin unique

The Gingerbread House has been built with love and care, and many happy memories have been made there from honeymoons, family times, Girl's shopping trips, Bachelor getaways, ski and golf trips, the list goes on and on. The unique location is close enough to larger towns, but far enough away to feel a sense of peace and relaxation. I love there are so many fun things to do and see, but I can also enjoy the splendor of quiet nature if I choose to do so.

Overall it was great!

Our experience with renting the gingerbread house and working with Patti Weaver was absolutely fantastic! We had a little bit of a surprise when we got there but Patti quickly rectified it. We were happy to have hiked up Grayson Highlands trails and saw wild ponies. We would do it again

Pure bliss

  • 5 of 5

Our family LOVED the gingerbread house. the moment we got inside we fell in love and said to each other that we never wanted to leave. It's very spacious well decorated and has everything you would need if you were at home. By the end of the 1st night we were already looking into booking again. The only thing that kinda bummed us out was the hamic wasnt there like posted in pic. Overall stay is 5 stars and would choose the cabin over any hotel any day.

If I may make a suggestion I think you would benifit in you converted the huge basement into an extra room with bathroom. And or play room/ game room with fun games Would have been nice to have something for our younger special needs. Son to have Deft will be booking again thanks for opening up your beautiful home to my family. Can't wait to return and enjoy

Great way to unwind!

  • 5 of 5

The house is nestled off of the main roads in a quaint neighborhood with lots of distance between the houses. We felt like we were in our own world. There is a nice gas grill and the first night we chose to buy a few groceries and eat on the picnic table on the deck instead of going to a restaurant! The house has most everything you need to be comfortable. I would definitely recommend this to a friend. I recommend that anyone who stays there should take a ride to West Jefferson and try Boondocks Brewery and Tap Room. With the location of the house - we easily made day trips to Boone, Valle Crucis, Blowing Rock and Grandfather Mountain.

Wonderful Mountain Get-away!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Gingerbread House! Lovely cabin in a great mountain neighborhood. We love the Boone area - staying in a cabin definitely enhanced the experience. Very close access to the Blue Ridge Parkway and about 20 minutes to Boone. Many restaurants available closer in the West Jefferson community. If you come during the winter season, be aware that the access roads are pretty steep.
